Potential Catalysts:

1. Start of Brexit negotiations – It’s Day 1 of Brexit negotiations and while it will be a while before we see concrete results, you can bet that a lot of market players will speculate to death on possible outcomes. Make sure you stick around in case a headline sticks and influences EUR or GBP’s price action!

2. Post-central bank price action – Now that the major central banks have had their say, traders will likely focus on economic data to see if they align with the central bankers’ sentiments.

Shout out to the Fed, which hasn’t quite convinced everybody that there’s reason for another rate hike this year. Oh, and keep an eye on the RBA, BOC, and RBNZ for signs that they’re switching their biases from neutral to hawkish!
